Crop And Save
This was part of the Gosling travels series made in 1975 by Granada TV. Reporter Ray Gosling travelled around the north in search of interesting people and places. This one was a look at Whittingham Asylum, which at one time was the second largest Asylum in Europe.
He interviewed a few of the people who stayed at the asylum and ask's how they came to be there and what they thought about the conditions they lived under. Also some of the people who worked there and what life was like for them to.
I personally found it a bit depressing, think One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest but without the humour and you'll no what i mean. I guess this programme was a good insight to what life would of been like in one of these places.
More like Hitchcock than Hammer
I really liked this film, lots of suspense with an interesting story line full of twists and turns as the plot unfolds.
I quickly recorded this on late night TV in the UK without knowing anything about it just because i seen it listed as a hammer film and seen it stared Robert Webber who i knew from "12 Angry Men". I thought that would make a interesting combination but when you think of the kind of films that Hammer are more well known for this dose`nt quite fit in now that i`ve seen it. But i`m glad i did record it.
What i like about it is Robert Webber seems to be going mad but is he? is he going mad or are we being made to think he is going mad? more to the point is someone trying to make him think he is mad ..... try and find a copy and find out, fans of psychological mysteries will love this one.
Our Mother's House (1967)
Great old film that gets better towards the end
I really liked this old sixties film, im not a big fan of films with just children in, so i could easily of turned this off half way through the film but im glad i didnt. Set in an old large London house, for the early parts of the film the kids of left alone to be kids, but the films gets interesting when Charlie Hook played by Dirk Bogarde turns up. The kids behaviour gets worse and the story line picks up. It might be obvious not long after he turns up what he is after but its still a good film. Night as good as "Night Of The Hunter" which it made me think of.
Yootha Joyce is more well known for George and Mildred and it always interesting for me to see actors more well known for TV sit-com rolls working in a film.
